“I try to keep on the cutting edge of things.”
“Basically, I specialize in the Symmetrical Astrology, which is composed of various schools of thought comprising the Uranian System, Cosmobiology, Cosmobiosophical and others based on the ideas compiled by Alfred Witte and incorporates many of the mundane ideas introduced by A. H. Blackwell. This modern approach also utilizes other new-wave forms of astrology as I long ago passed through the more orthodox and traditional forms. I try to teach people new ways of looking and thinking about astrology without limiting myself to the confines of any specific school of thought.”
